PSG, Barca on verge of Champions League last 16
Big-spending PSG, five-time champion Barcelona and Jose Mourinho's Manchester United are among the teams looking to book a Champions League last-16 place Tuesday. The pick of the action sees Anderlecht take on Neymar and Co in Paris, while Barcelona face Olympiakos and Roma go head-to-head with Chelsea in Italy. Here we take a look at what is at stake in each group:  
Man Utd v Benfica Mourinho's side can secure a place in the last 16 with two matches to spare with a win at Old Trafford, if Basel avoid defeat against CSKA Moscow. Basel v CSKA Basel will clinch a spot in the knockout phase with a second straight win over CSKA, if Benfica fail to beat United. Celtic v Bayern Brendan Rodgers' team face a stiff test against Bayern Munich as they bid to keep their European adventure alive. PSG v Anderlecht Unai Emery's French heavyweight have cruised through their opening three fixtures - netting 12 goals with none conceded - and will be expected to again sweep aside Anderlecht at Parc des Princes. Atletico v Qarabag Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid are still searching for their first win of the competition after a goalless draw in Azerbaijan a fortnight ago. Chelsea v Roma The winner of the clash at the Stadio Olimpico will be well-placed to reach the last 16 with both teams still to play a game against struggling Qarabag. Olympiakos v Barca The first meeting two weeks ago saw Barca ease to a 3-1 win with only 10 men, while Olympiakos, bottom of Group D, will be eliminated if they lose and Sporting Lisbon fail to beat Juventus. Sporting v Juve Sporting and Juve look set to be in a straight fight for second place in Group D behind Barca, with today’s match in Lisbon crucial after the Italians' 2-1 win at Turin.
